"Expats earn most in China"

A survey commissioned by HSBC shows China is the third most popular country for expatriates, only next to Switzerland and Singapore.

According to the survey, China is home to the highest-earning expats in the world ĘC nearly a quarter of foreigners in the country each earn more than 300-thousand dollars a year.
Less spending is another advantage of living in China as expats fork out less on public transport, household goods, utilities and leisure costs.

Higher income, combined with less spending, means that 76 percent of expats are finding themselves with more disposable income in China than they did back home.

"Square dancing banned at specified time in Guangdong"

South China's Guangdong Province is considering banning square dancing in parks at specified time.

The province's draft park ordinance keeps people from making loud noise at parks from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., and from 10:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. in the morning.

During these specified periods, activity organizers and participates should reduce the music volume or stopping playing music. If not, they will be fined between 200 and 1000 yuan.

"Three glasses of milk a day can lead to early death, warn scientists"

Milk has long been recommended by doctors and nutritionists for boosting calcium intake and helping to keep bones strong.

But research suggests that it does little to strengthen bones and can double the risk of an early death.

A study that tracked 61-thousand women and 45-thousand men for 20 years found there was no reduction in broken bones for those who consumed the most milk.
For women, high milk intake was associated with an increased chance of suffering a fracture.

Those who drank three glasses or more a day (680ml) were twice as likely to die earlier than those who consumed less than one.

England's National Health Service recommends milk to help with osteoporosis and says that a pint (about 550ml) provides a healthy amount of calcium for the day.

"Indians addicted to smartphones, says survey"

A survey revealed that as many as 95 percent of Indian respondents feel that a smartphone is a very critical importance to their daily lives.

The survey, which was conducted online across 25 countries from North America, Europe, South America and the Asia Pacific, covered nearly nine-thousand employed adults aged 18 years and above.

The findings clearly suggest an increasing dependency on the mobile platform.

Indians lead in app booking and data roaming plans globally. 75 percent of Indians are those who have used an app on their smartphone or tablet to book accommodations.

68 per cent of the Indians admitted that they purchased an international data or roaming plan for their mobile device(s) while travelling away from their home network.
